1989 Etap 28i

Beaulieu, Hampshire


Circa 450 Etap 28is were built by Belgium based Etap Yachting from 1988 onwards. They were designed by Philippe Harle and Alain Mortain as a 6 berth family cruiser with sharp performance. They have a reputation for being fun to sail and good for short-handed cruising. Pelagos is a shallow fin keel version from 1989. 18hp Volvo diesel engine with saildrive ( seals replaced 2017 ). Standing and running rigging from 2013. Mainsail and Genoa by Sanders Sails, in very good condition. Very nicely equipped and in great shape. Polished and antifouled and ready to go.
